FRIDAY OCTOBER 19, 1990 – SATURDAY NOVEMBER 17, 1990

Dan Hoffman's works on view at the Storefront shows a recurrent concern with material processes in architectural constructions, the increasing separation of the architect from the site, and the conditions of buildings. Hoffman’s concern about reestablishing body’s relation to building activities was reflected in six studies of building formwork, each contains and directs liquid materials such as concrete, resin, lead, and wax. The relationship between the liquid and the formwork structure in these studies suggested an architecture that demonstrates the forces from architecture's own construction. The exhibition also includes a section entitled “Vision without Inversion,” an experiment that explored the phenomenon of retinal inversion through photo-based documentations. For this exhibition, Hoffman designed and tested simple devices to achieve vision without inversion.
